Have you checked with the purchaser of your flat that they do not mind you selling off parts of the freehold and thereby reducing the value of the flat?
I see, ok. Well in essence to keep it brief you did need to issue the s5 because that is a formal process set out in statute that has to be followed when the freehold is to be sold. It need not be protracted but must be done. I trust this assists you in understanding your position however, should you have any supplementary inquiries, do not hesitate to ask and I will look to clarify or expand on my previous response.
